Samsung Electronics is set to release a 12 inch tablet PC.
According to industry sources on August 15, Samsung Electronics is now engaged in development of a 12 inch tablet PC, the largest screen size among those it released so far.
At present, the tablet PC with the largest screen size among those produced by Samsung is the one with a 11.6 inch screen size.
Accordingly, if Samsung Electronics releases a 12 inch model, it would have a compact tablet PC lineup ranging from 7 inch to 12 inch models.
The 12 inch tablet PC will likely to use Samsung Display’s LCD panel, while having a higher than full HD resolution.
Although it is not known yet when it will be released, the industry expects the 12 inch tablet PC to be released within October 2013.
According to a market research firm IDC, Samsung Electronics sold 8.1 million units of tablet PCs in the second quarter of this year, up 2.1 million units from a year ago, with its market share rising to 18.9 percent worldwide, a 2.5-fold jump year on year
